remove asthma triggers and health hazards in your home?


1. Learn about this resource. 

Residents can get help to make their home a safer and healthier place for children with asthma and pregnant people. We—DC Government—will help you identify health hazards like dust mites, cockroaches, rodents, dampness, and tobacco smoke that can make asthma and allergies worse. We will provide you and your landlord, property manager, or tenant with tailored information, education, and referrals to help correct or minimize each hazard.


This program is called the Healthy Homes Program and is offered by the Department of Energy and Environment.
